Southeast Asian Airlines Inc. (Seair) has filed a petition with the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) for an approval to fly to Papua New Guinea.
In a filing with CAB, Seair is asking for the allocation of 1,440-seat entitlements to Papua New Guinea, in accordance with the existing confidential memorandum of understanding entered into between the governments of the Philippines and Papua New Guinea.
Seair said that it will use 720 seat entitlements from Clark to Port Morseby, and Port Morseby to Clark.
The carrier said that it will be using Airbus 319/320 to fly to Papua New Guinea.
Seair recently converted its operations from that of a leisure airline to a low-cost budget airline, with a fleet consisting of three Airbus A320s and two A319s. It currently offers flights from Clark to Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Kota Kinabalu and Kalibo.
